Who could be better than Robin?,
This review is from: The Adventures of Robin Hood (Puffin Classics) (Paperback)
What would you do if you were called an outlaw by Prince John of England? Would you go ran away and become the leader of the outlaws? Well, that's what Robert of Locksley, or better known as Robin Hood, in the historical adventure novel The Adventures of Robin Hood, by Roger Lancelyn Green, did.
In the time of King Richard, a legend was born. Robert of Locksley was about to be married to the lovely, Marian Fitzwalter but, a man by the name of Sir Guy of Gisborne came with a warrant for his arrest, for stealing from Prince John. Robin stole from Prince John and gave it back to the poor. At this time and for the rest of his life he would be known as Robin Hood, the outlaw. Robin became a savior from the Sheriff to the people of Locksley and a legend. Along the way Robin meets many people including, Little John, who isn't quite that little, and Friar Tuck. He also met Will Scarlet, who becomes Robin's right-hand man, and his enemies Sir Guy of Gisborne and the Sheriff of Nottingham.
This book, as a single story, is full with the legend born in Sherwood Forest and with the story of how Robin helped others with this band of merry men. The author was detailed in the description of characters and settings. Roger Lancelyn Green loved to tell stories especially about legends and myths. He started to write the stories of Robin Hood showing his writing in many variations both old and new English. I recommend this book to readers who love to read about old legends and about adventurous stories. This book is meant for you, including those who love to read literature that is from the 1900's.
